Ms. Marvel has won the world’s interest, but Pakistanis are more than willing to see a Muslim and Pakistani superhero on television.
During a Walt Disney Investor Day presentation, Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige revealed that in the upcoming show, Iman Vellani would star as Kamala Khan, aka Ms. Marvel.

Slated to launch on Disney+ in 2021, the Marvel studios added on December 10 that besides the newcomer, big names will be included in the film.
It seems Nimra Bucha has added another feather to her hat after her performance in the ZEE5 web series Churails. With Ms. Marvel, the actress is all set to make her way into the Marvel Universe.
The website has confirmed her existence, but her role has not been stated and she has not made any mention of it on social media either. Aramis Knight, Saagar Shaikh, Rish Shah, Zenobia Shroff, Mohan Kapur, Matt Lintz, Yasmeen Fletcher, Laith Naki, Azher Usman and Travina Springer will also be featured in the series alongside Vellani and Bucha.
Iman Vellani as Kamala will be seen in Jersey City as a 16-year-old Pakistani-American growing up. As an ardent player, she is a fine student, but Kamala has a special passion for super heroes, Captain Marvel in particular, said the writers of the masterpiece in a brief excerpt.
At home and at school, though, Kamala fails to fit in, that is, before she gets super powers like the heroes she’s always looked up to. With super powers, life is better, right? That’s not it, though,’ they said.
Adil El Arbi, Bilall Fallah of the Bad Boys for Life, Meera Menon of The Walking Dead, Dirty John and Outlander and Pakistani director Sharmeen Obaid-Chinoy, recipient of the Academy Award, will direct the episodes of the programme.
